Saturday, May 20th, 2017
10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The May long weekend is a perfect time to enjoy some of Denman Island's celebrated creativity. An incredibly wide variety of exciting forms, styles and decorative techniques make the community's FREE spring pottery studio tour a truly fascinating exploration into the world of clay and a cultural highlight in the region!


A special feature on the tour this year is "The 30th Year Pottery Tour - Coming Full Circle Exhibition". This celebratory retrospective will highlight both new and older works by many of the tour's original and ongoing participants, and also feature works by other talented artists who have joined the tour in more recent years.


From stunning wood-fired vases and hand-painted casseroles, to beautiful dinner sets, one-of-a-kind coffee mugs and decorative sculpture for the garden, there is something to be found on the tour to suit every taste and budget.


Visit the studios of some of BC's finest clay artisans: Gordon Hutchens, Tom Dennis, Hanne Christensen, Scott and Garnet Beardsley, Bentley LeBaron, Shirley Phillips of Lilac Sun Pottery, Marjo Van Tooren of Down to Earth Pottery, Barb and John Mills of Raucous Raven Pottery, and Dante Ambriel and Tashi Draper of Flowing Art Studio. Winding one's way down picturesque country roads to each artist's unique studio setting is a lot like a treasure hunt, and a wonderful way to explore and appreciate the laid back rural ambiance and natural beauty of lovely Denman Island.


Pick up your free map to the self-guided tour at the Buckley Bay ferry booth, Abraxas Books, Denman Island Craft Shop, the General Store or at the Old School Centre at 5901 Denman Rd. Saturday, May 20th is also the first day of the season for Denman's Farmers Market, and that is also on the grounds of the Old School Centre where our special anniversary show is taking place!
